Screen of Screens 'OR' Problem

I have a screen of screens which uses a series of rules like this:

screen("Screen1",5)
OR screen("Screen2",5)
OR screen("Screen3",5)
OR screen("Screen4",5)

The results are then ranked according a ranking formula.

It has worked right up until today when I get the 'Invalid Rule Type' error on the 'OR' rules. It seems one call to a screen works, but subsequent calls to additional screens don't. Please advise. Thank you.

Hmmm. I just checked one of my screen of screens that is similar and I'm also getting a "ERROR: Unsupported rule type"

Seems like the issue is with the OR rule.

My screens without OR rule run fine, but with the OR rule I get the "ERROR: Unsupported rule type"

Yes, I'm having the same issue.

Confirmed with my screens that have OR rules on separate lines. I was able to work around the problem by combining the separate rules onto one line separated with OR.

OR rule is still not working even with the workaround. Is anyone else still having this problem as well?

I just confirmed it's not working for me either.

We're investigating. In the meantime, I think that the logical OR within a single rule is working as a workaround. That is, a rule that looks like this is working:

MktCap>2000 or ROE%TTM>5


But the screen's and/or toggle isn't.

Re: Screen of Screens 'OR' Problem

Hi Paul,

Thanks, but note the "or" within a rule isn't sufficient - I think most of us are using the multi-line "or" because of the character limit in a single rule or other reasons that make testing "or" rules easier that way.

Thx,
Ed

Re: Screen of Screens 'OR' Problem

We just patched it. It should be working now. Let me know if there are still any problems with this.
